Hi,

TOAD have an aoption for a direct connection and when I try to connect to my Oracle server TOAD raise error "Can't initialize oci". When I install Oracle client all works fine, where I was wrong?

Thanks

TOAD
You have no Oracle clients installed

It looks obvious to me - install Oracle client!

BTW, my TOAD doesn't look like yours. Would you mind to tell us your TOAD version so that someone might check what you are talking about. Where is that "direct connection", anyway? I couldn't find it in Help.

When I isnstall Oracle client all works fine, but I have a some tools which have a direct connection without any oracle installation and I think that Toad use same type of connection but I was wrong.

Thanks Littlefoot

Yep, TOAD needs an Oracle client. They say so themselves in the Installation and Administration part of the Help.

Quest tells us
Toad does not require any other support libraries beyond the 32 bit Net client itself.
It's a single dll depending on your Oracle version. All possible names are listed in the help file too.

For "direct connection", you can try OraCmd, no need to install Oracle client, but it is a command line tool.
